The Duke of Cambridge speaks to The Sunday Times ahead of his 19 June visit to the International Business Festival in Liverpool.

Prince William leads small business exports charge

Quote:
The Duke of Cambridge has urged small businesses to get exporting to stop Britain losing its position as a “hub for global commerce”.

Speaking exclusively to The Sunday Times, Prince William said it was “vital for future growth and prosperity that more of these businesses start to export”.

“Britain has always been a great trading nation, and a hub for global commerce,” he added, “but where our fast-growing community of small and medium-sized enterprises is concerned, we cannot risk falling behind.”

He was speaking before the International Business Festival, where he is a patron, which starts in Liverpool this week. The comments come amid a renewed export push by the government. At present, it is estimated that just a third of small businesses sell their products abroad.

Boosting exports is seen as vital if Britain is to flourish after leaving the EU. In the year to the end of March, the total trade deficit narrowed by £13.3bn to £26.6bn.

Prince William was positive about the post-Brexit prospects for companies in the Commonwealth, saying: “There is no other network on earth that comes close to the Commonwealth in terms of its breadth and impact — it truly is the mother of all networks.”

He said he hoped the business festival would support the “next generation of entrepreneurs and business leaders, helping them to learn the skills they need to thrive”.

“We know that one of the major challenges for business is access to a skilled workforce, and it is one we must all work together to respond to,” he said. “It’s only by nurturing … the talents of Britain’s young people that we will be able to build the fair and prosperous society we all want to live in.”

After leaving the air ambulance service last year, Prince William has taken on more royal duties. He said government should play a part in encouraging more exporting and urged entrepreneurs to make use of the services available to them. “I’m always impressed as I go around the world how much our embassies know about British business, and their determination to help in foreign markets.”

He said holding the festival in Liverpool showed that businesses thrived across the UK. “It’s important to remind ourselves and the world that the majority of British commercial activity happens outside London and the southeast,” the prince said.

The bosses at Liverpool’s International Business Festival, a jamboree to promote trade and international investment that starts on Tuesday, are keeping a stiff upper lip amid the political turmoil around Brexit.

“When people are wondering about our position as a trading nation, the fact that we have secured more than 150 delegations from over 90 countries says business people want to meet their counterparts here at what will be the biggest business festival in the world,” said chairman Max Steinberg. The festival runs for nine days over three weeks with more than 100 speakers, including ARM Holdings chief Simon Segars and BA boss Alex Cruz. It will focus on themes such as global logistics, manufacturing and the creative industries.

#PrinceWilliam’s back on the polo field this afternoon. He’ll be playing against the Dhamani 1969 side in the Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy at Gloucestershire’s @polobeaufort. The match is to raise funds and awareness for two of his charities: @royalmarsden and @centrepointuk

An A&E nurse who submitted her first poem to a national competition in the hope of helping traumatised war heroes will have her work read aloud by the Duke of Cambridge after being voted the "next Wilfred Owen".

Debbie Lawson, a Telegraph reader, said she wrote about PTSD to raise awareness of the "brave, brave people" she looks after, sending her work to a competition to find the war poets of the modern age.

Her lines, which impressed high-profile judges and the voting public alike, have now seen her crowned the winner of the competition, with her poem to be mounted on the wall forever more at the new Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre.

Mrs Lawson, who works as a PTSD counsellor and comes from a military family, said she was “overwhelmed and so moved” to have her work recognised, after being inspired by the true stories told to her by a patient who had seen his comrades killed in Afghanistan.

Her poem, entitled One For the Team, took her just ten minutes to write, before she submitted it to the "Poem to Remember" competition without telling her family after reading about the DNRC project in the news.

IMO it is fitting that the person of the front lines of care for the troops would be the one whose work was selected. Ms. Lawson would have first hand knowledge of the trauma that her patients have experienced.

Today the @DNRCOfficial, a world-class rehab facility for Armed Forces personnel who have suffered major trauma or injury, was handed over to the nation. At the ceremony The Duke of Cambridge read ‘One for the Team’ by Debbie Lawson, winner of the 'Poem to Remember' competition.


Not ashamed to admit that tears welled up when I heard that poem. Ms. Lawson has written a very moving and touching piece that IMO would reflect what she's heard as a caregiver to wounded military personnel and their families over the years.

The Chairman of RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) North Wales Local Members Group has received a letter from the Duke of Cambridge in recognition of the efforts of local surveyors in raising money to help combat homelessness and poverty.

The fundraising by the group is part of the RICS Pledge 150 initiative. Launched in January 2018 to celebrate RICS’ 150th anniversary year, Pledge150 aims to raise funds for LandAid to deliver 150 bed spaces for vulnerable, young and homeless people across all 12 UK regions by December 2018.

The Duke of Cambridge has sent a letter to David Kelsall since the sleepout. It offers David and the other members his “warmest thanks” and says that he “very much hopes it was a success in raising awareness of this important issues and much needed funds for homelessness”.

The Duke of Cambridge is to renew his love of Africa with a conservation-led visit to the continent later this month.

William announced he will be making a working visit to Namibia, Tanzania and Kenya later this month during his first speech as patron of the Royal African Society (RAS).

William, who took over the role from the Queen in December 2016, told a central London reception for the RAS: “Africa’s wildlife is suffering as well as its people.

“Like so many others, I am deeply saddened by the numbers of elephant, rhino and pangolin who have been illegally slaughtered for their tusks, horns and scales. But the illegal wildlife trade also has a devastating human impact.

“Too many brave rangers are tragically killed each year by poachers. Communities see their tourist livelihoods threatened. And the proceeds of the illegal wildlife trade fund broader criminal networks and threaten security.

“This is why I am committed to doing what I can to help end this terrible, global crime. This will be a particular focus of my upcoming visit to Africa, and of course the conference on the illegal wildlife trade taking place here in London in October
